Brad Hunt is projected to be a healthy scratch Friday night.

The 29-year-old defenseman is a veteran of 33 career NHL games. Hunt's one of nine defensemen on the team, so until that situation gets sorted he's unlikely to get much, if any, playing time with Vegas.

Brad Hunt is making it very hard for the Vegas Golden Knights to send him to the minors.

Hunt leads the team in scoring with six points in four games and has been a force on the power play. The knock against the 29-year-old defenseman has been his size as he is only five-foot, nine but he certainly has been a stud offensively. The Golden Knights still have 11 defensemen in camp and while it is likely they will make a couple of trades, it should be interesting to see what happens to Brad Hunt.
